I read user guide but not able to locate the file where i have to set the enviromental variables(JAVA_HOME etc).
Can you suggest me the name of the file (which is equivalent(just like) autoexe.bat file in windows).

After you extract tomcat, type TOMCAT_HOME=yourinstallation directory/jakarta-tomcat-4.0(I'm using tomcat 3.2.1 so I'm assuming that's the numbering for tomcat 4); export TOMCAT_HOME.
set JAVA_HOME=your root directory for the jdk. Add java interpreter to your PATH environment variable.
